Alfusin 10 mg treats the symptoms of benign prostatic hypertrophy. This is when the prostate gland enlarges, but the growth is not cancerous. An enlargement of the prostate causes the problem in urination.). The condition is mainly common in older men. Alfuzosin is a pharmaceutical substance that belongs to the alpha-1 blocker class. It is an aromatic heterocyclic compound containing one or more amino groups. Alfuzosin is considered a quinazoline compound with smooth muscle-relaxing activity. It causes the prostate gland muscles to relax. This allows the urethra to get bigger and makes it easier to pass water. It got the FDA approval for treatment of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BHP) in June 2003.
The recommended dose is one 10 mg Alfusin extended-release tablet once daily. Take Alfuzosin with the same meal every day. Do not chew or break the tablet.
Patients taking Alfusin 10 mg may experience orthostatic hypotension (a condition where blood pressure falls rapidly when a person stands up after sitting/lying for a long time) within a few hours following the administration of Alfuzosin. Patients are warned of the possible occurrence of such events and should avoid situations where injury could result in orthostatic hypotension. There may be an increased risk of hypotension (low blood pressure) when taking Alfusin tablets concomitantly with anti-hypertensive medicines and nitrates. When the drug is given to patients with low blood pressure or patients with a history of hypotensive response to other medicines, care should be taken.
